Now that the weather is warm, it is a good excuse to go for a drive to the countryside, breathe in fresh air and enjoy local produce.

Although many farms only offer curbside pick up, there are others that are open and allow access to their fields. Strawberry season has started and you can pick your own berries, and every farm has their own precautions for keeping their guests safe.
